Default a new dat pack

Due to extream circumstances i am starting over in vanadeil so this will be on hold till i get some well off agine. anyway that aside i will soon begin work on a new dat pack like my old one with a few big diffrences. this new one will use a html file to present you the end user with options. that html file will compile your options using a scripting interface. (i have seen it done on win dvd's from torrent sites that come with every prog & thir brother) so i know its possible. that said this is gonna take ALOTA research. the back end will be basicly the same as my original dat pack except it will ave to a temp location to be copyd to ffxi install & there will be multiple folders. also this round i plan to take my time make a screen shot of every dat & overlay the credits of that dat on the picture. needless to say this is gonna be a huge pack but im working on that too. sevral ideas i am floating around is a split rar archive so you can download a peice at a time as able.

The other Idea im floating around is providing the html/scripting interface as a download by itself & allow each of the back end folders (each in of it self the same idea as my original dat pack but there will be atleast 4 of these). it would take alota extra work but i could theme each one i guess like 18+ or artistic or creative or weird. then u would only havta download the theme ud want or u could download them all. the html interface i have in mind would do the hard work for you.

I am posting this for 2 reasons. i want opinions & gauge generall intrest. Also from the first hint of this idea i wanted this tobe a open sorce project like wiki & sorce forge. so opinions advice or old fashion do it ur self posting a code snipit all welcome.

Would be nice to see a continuation of what devifoxx started once which was a large collection of Dats...

Of course I wonder how it would go with todays massive amounts of dats, and tracking them all down and adding them. Would definantly take some work.

Sounds good, probably want a manual option of installing dats too, people like to make sure they have a backup (usualy haha) and want to see it done themselves then automatic :P

well i suppose i could put a check box to have the script engine create a folder with the dats already in proper order so they could just copy "square enix" over square enix & still it would be manuall. as for the back up bit i was gonna include the original SE dats just like i did last time.

this project will comence very soon. The hold up has been a combination of RL issues & last year i was in game tblomega & had trusted a friend with my details (HUGE MISTAKE)

I am now Tblo ingame & almost have back most of what i lost so will soon have free time for this. (sky sea gear yada yada) (zm14 cop5.3 whm51 blm41 rdm30 restarted dec 16 2007) vs (jan 2005 whm75 zm17 cop 8.4 apoch nigh whm 75 blm 37)
soon as i finish up with that ill begin working on this 2nd dat patch.

As for your soft core idea this patch is entirly about choice unlike my old one. The idea of this patch is for any givin dat u should have between 2-6 options ranging from super clean cool or cutsie to hardcore whatever floats your boat.

I am also looking into 3ds max & maya soon so I may have a few personal contributions not at launch but few updates out. I am also looking into delivery meathods as this patch will be HUGE!!!!! but will be selfcontaind with all available options including SE original dats.

One idea is to provide the interface i have in mind by its self, & have the background sub folders containing that dats themed. So if u want soft core or cutsie you download only that, then have it meerly "plug in" to the actuall itnerface that will do the work {that i have in mind.}

Option 2 is a full complete package compressed with winrar & splitting it up so you could download a rar at a time & when u had em all u could roll. ill probably do both options tbh.

If you do what we talked about in game, I think it will be a great pack! I hope to see the results soon. (And be able to log in once again >.> <.<)
